Keystone S-3 U.S. Submarine Hull

This is a different S-3 sub from the others that are shown in another previous post.  It measures 7″ x 2″ and is far simpler and stocky in design.  The sub has two torpedo tubes that each have a non-removable torpedo.  The hull tapers and the bottom has an inset metal keel.  This is the first ship that I have seen with this type of keel.  The paint on the sub is well worn but the S-3 U. S. can just be seen.  As simple as this sub is I am inclined to thing that it was like a target ship for some yet identified set.

From my private collection.
